Polished Concrete and Surface Prep
Polished concrete is a popular alternative to other flooring materials because of several significant factors: lower maintenance, aesthetics, durability and ultimately, lower total cost.
Concrete has long been known for its durability and cost efficiency. With the latest technology, homeowners, business owners and manufacturers are finding they can exploit these advantages of concrete in their floor along with many other benefits.
Polished concrete’s superior durability and low maintenance have made it an exceptional finish for retail stores, restaurants, warehouses, manufacturing plants, office facilities, schools and churches. In addition, homeowners are selecting these smooth, high-sheen floors that imitate the look of high priced stone such as granite and marble.
Polished concrete floors are remarkable in appearance. The ability to expose the aggregate in the concrete reveals a look of stone. There are a variety of colors available to stain the polished floor. There are also numerous levels of sheen depending on the degree of reflectivity and shine that is desired. In addition to the shine and exposed aggregate, there are endless ways to customize your polished concrete floors with artistic enhancements, such as a logo or name.
Polished concrete floors are very cost effective. With a polished floor, the replacement of worn out flooring becomes a thing of the past. They are ground, densified and sealed to be foot traffic-friendly as well as resistant to spills of liquids and oils alike.
Maintenance on a polished floor is minimal, which ultimately reduces costs associated with keeping floors clean, durable and reflective of the sparkling environment you possess.
